Scotland is part of the United Kingdom, so if you decide to import your vehicle into Scotland, you will need to adhere to all of the policies regulated by the UK. The first two requirements are specific regulations that must be met by the vehicle:

The vehicle must also comply with environmental and safety guidelines. The easiest and most straightforward way to do this is to use the Individual Vehicle Approval scheme and follow the steps given at this website.

Once the vehicle is shipped to Scotland, you will be subject to customs duties and taxes, and using the vehicle specifics, you can easily compute the total here.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Scotland.

Best Car Shipping Company Scotland
  • Passport.
  • Bill of lading or air waybill.
  • Shipping declaration.
  • Visa.
  • Work permit.
  • C104A or appropriate import form.

Most individuals who ship vehicles into Scotland are also subject to the Value Added Tax (VAT), which is due prior to shipping the vehicle. Only those who fall into a few specific categories can possibly have this additional fee waived. Exemptions may be given if:

  • You are permanently moving to Scotland.
  • You are importing a previously exported Scotland vehicle.
  • You are a non-European Union member and you don’t intend to stay longer than 6 months (this is known as temporary admission relief)

In order to determine the amount of your VAT, or to find out if you qualified to have the duties and taxes waived, complete the “Notification of Vehicle Arrival” service online here which is the website for HM Revenue and Customs.

It is also extremely helpful and will ensure the process of shipping your vehicle to Scotland is smooth one if you complete a “Vehicle Import Pack” from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) on the Department of Transport website.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
